Tropical Mango Sorbet

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to freezer case sorbets, why not make your own?

Sorbets are an easy dessert that can be made in as little at 15 minutes (…minus freezing time). Sorbet is nothing more than a fruit puree combined with a syrup made of water and sugar. Most recipes call for lime or lemon juice.

This Tropical Mango Sorbet is and is one of our favorites because it only calls for 2 Tbsp of sugar. Since mangos are naturally sweet, it’s no wonder that mango-based sorbets are so popular.

With more than 20 different vitamin and minerals, mangos are a nutritional all-star.  They’re rich in vitamins A, C and contain potassium, B-vitamins, vitamin K and fiber. You can enjoy a cup of sliced mango for just 100 calories.
